Wet Carpet Due to Plugged Evaporator Drain on Chrysler Sebring

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The carpet under the right side of the dash may become wet with water. This can be caused by the AC evaporator drain being plugged with debris. Our technicians tell us that once the drain is clear, a cabin air filter should be installed to keep debris out.

Drivers side floor gets very wet when A/C has been running. If drain is plugged how do I clear it. I had the drain lines blown out but no luck. Is there an evaporator pan in the dash or is that where the evaporator is. I am at a loss. Can you please help. Sure don't want to take the dash off. Thanks.
Water puddles under the carpet on passenger side, near foot rest/floor crease on the right side by door frame after light or heavy rain or car wash. Water wicks up from under the carpet, forming a visible puddle. Dealer verified leak is not coming from AC drain but from the cowl under the hood. This per Dealer, is caused by a defect in a cowl/firewall weld or metal to metal crimp. This diagnosis seemed odd to me, since car is garaged, well maintained, and very low mileage. Dealer referred me to a private body shop to perform required repair since dealer has no body shop. Dealer seemed to imply this specific defect is a routine problem for chrysler brands. I am scheduled for body shop to do the repair of this leak. (I don't know what they will do yet or cost?) I'm waiting on a date to bring it in.
I have same problem. Dealer just quoted $1300 to fix. Any simpler and cheaper solutions? How do I find drain and can I do it myself?
Right side of car gets water now both side got cleaned two times but it happens again
I'm having the exact same problem and other problems as well. I had water coming down to the passengers feet when the ac was turned on causing a paddle unable to get out due to not having any drain plugs on the floor. Ac stopped working and I have no power to the ac compressor or the ac pressure switch that's attached to the ac line and I also hear a popping noise on the passenger side. My last problem is that the drivers side high beam doesn't have any power but the passengers high beam works great. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks
